Gut Dysbiosis means something isn't right or working properly in the gut

Gut Dysbiosis means something isn’t right or working properly in the gut. When we eat food we aren’t sterilizing everything we eat. If you swabbed the food that you eat like fruit, they would have bacteria. This bacteria is supposed to be killed once they come in contact with stomach acid, which isn’t happening for people who have gut dysbiosis.

In this video Dr. Minkoff will explain:

  • Gut Dysbiosis
  • Signs and symptoms of gut dysbiosis
  • When to see a doctor
  • Treatment options for gut dysbiosis

About Dr. Minkoff

Dr. David Minkoff graduated from the University of Wisconsin Medical School in 1974 and was elected to the “Phi Beta Kappa” of medical schools, the prestigious Alpha Omega Alpha Honors Medical Fraternity for very high academic achievement. He then completed both a Pediatric Residency and a Fellowship in Infectious Disease at the University of California at San Diego. He worked at the University of California and Children’s Hospitals in San Diego as an attending physician in infectious disease while conducting original research on Ribaviron, a broad spectrum anti-viral agent to fight disease. He also co-directed a neo-natal intensive care unit and worked in emergency medicine. In 1992, Dr. Minkoff’s attended a lecture by Dr. Jeffrey Bland, widely considered the father of functional medicine, during which he had a eureka moment, and began pursuing the alternative health field with a vengeance, studying under the most accomplished thought leaders on natural & integrative healing. In 1997 Dr. Minkoff and his wife set up a small clinic to help friends with their medical problems. What began as an experiment blossomed into LifeWorks Wellness Center, one of the most successful clinics for complementary medicine in the United States.
